Katie Kieffer: Cleaning Obama's Bloodstains

Blood is staining the globe.    Not the blood of terrorists (enemies of America), but the blood of innocent Americans. We cannot resuscitate our loved ones. We can only attempt to clean President Obama’s bloodstains by removing him—and all who think like him—from public office. There is no need to “judge” Obama’s heart to realize that he is unfit to lead;   ...

Karin McQuillan: Why Obama Chose To Let Them Die

What if al-Qaeda is not "on the run?" The burning question is why Obama didn't give orders to defend our consulate and American lives in Benghazi.  The answer is becoming clearer each time President Obama and Secretary of Defense Panetta issue a denial or explanation of their inaction.  To the president's surprise, he chanced on an honest   ...

Thomas Sowell: 'Cooling Out' The Voters

Playing the electorate as chumps.  Confidence men know that their victim — "the mark" as he has been called — is eventually going to realize that he has been cheated. But it makes a big difference whether he realizes it immediately, and goes to the police, or realizes it after the confidence man is long gone. So part of the confidence racket is creating a    ...

Thomas Sowell: Libya And Lies

No profile in courage here. It was a little much when President Barack Obama said that he was "offended" by the suggestion that his administration would try to deceive the public about what happened in Benghazi. What has this man not deceived the public about? Remember his pledge to cut the deficit in half in his first term in office? This was followed by the  ... MORE

Andrew Napolitano: What Is A Just War?

When safety and liberty are threatened.   When President Obama announced last April that he was sending the United States military to bomb Libya, he not only violated the United States Constitution, which he has taken an oath to uphold, but he also violated the moral principles of the just war. The Constitution permits only Congress to declare war and the   ... MORE

Walter E Williams: Democracy Is Impossible

Rule of law and property rights are the key. After Moammar Gadhafi's downfall as Libya's tyrannical ruler, politicians and "experts" in the U.S. and elsewhere, including French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe, are saying that his death marked the end of 42 years of tyranny and the beginning of democracy in Libya. Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., said Gadhafi's death represented an opportunity for Libya to make a peaceful and responsible transition ... MORE

Gene Healy: "Mission Accomplished" in Libya?

The Obama Doctrine is nothing to celebrate. Mission accomplished! As Libyan rebels took Tripoli last week, liberals practically draped that banner across the nation's op-ed pages. Now was the time for all good men to come together and praise a famous victory. In Newsweek, liberal columnist Michael Tomasky pronounced Libya "completely the right thing to do," ... MORE

VIDEO: What Ever Happened To The Constitution?

Disregard for Constitutional principles has led to coming chaos.

Charles Krauthammer: Who Takes Us To War?

Is the Libya war legal? Under the 1973 War Powers Resolution, it is not. President Obama has exceeded the 90-day period to receive retroactive authorization from Congress. But things are not so simple. No president should accept — and no president from Nixon on has accepted — the constitutionality of the WPR, passed unilaterally by Congress over a presidential veto.     ... MORE

Clinton: Obama Will Ignore Congress On Libya War

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told a classified congressional hearing that the Obama regime would ignore Congress if it tried to rein in the unconstitutional war in Libya, but that the administration would send press releases to lawmakers, according to news reports. When Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) asked Clinton during the briefing what the regime’s response would be to Congress exercising its constitutional  ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: Measuring Force

You don't just walk up to the local bully and slap him across the face. If you are determined to confront him, then you try to knock the living daylights out of him. Otherwise, you are better off to leave him alone. Anyone who grew up in my old neighborhood in Harlem could have told you that. But Barack Obama didn't grow up in my old neighborhood. He had a much more genteel upbringing, including a fancy private school,  ... MORE

Ben Stein: We Have An Illegal War

What will tomorrow bring from this third-rate crowd?
Okay, kids. Now, let's see where we are today in the wacky, mad, wonderful world of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton playing at war and diplomacy. When we last looked in, Hill and Barack had just junked the U.S. Constitution and gone to war at the order -- not of Congress but of the United Nations Security Council... But look.  ....  MORE
